Product Description:

Often referred to as "The French Hitchcock," Claude Chabrol gravitated frequently to thrillers, but often used this genre as a mere springboard into other areas, such as social criticism, satire, or broad comedy. The two features in this set - 2004's LA DEMOISELLE D'HONNEUR/THE BRIDESMAID, and 2000's MERCI POUR LE CHOCOLAT/NIGHTCA[ - epitomize this tendency. THE BRIDESMAID constitutes an adaptation of a Ruth Rendell novel, as it weaves the tale of a dangerous love affair between an impressionable young man (Benoit Magimel) and a disturbed bridesmaid (Laura Smet); the film co-stars Aurore Clément, Bernard Le Coq and Solene Bouton. MERCI POUR LE CHOCOLAT presents the labyrinthine chronicle of a young girl named Jeanne (Anna Mouglalis), who comes to believe that she may have been switched at birth, and that Mika (Huppert) - the woman newly married to the man whom Anna believes is her biological father - may be trying to poison her. MERCI co-stars Jacques Dutronc and Rodolphe Pauly.
